Nicholas Harrison, a new chef with Louisiana roots, prompted our return visit to this East Austin spot (as did the large patio perched on a cliff edge overlooking a section of the Colorado River). Beef comes straight from the Jacoby family ranch, in the form of steak frites—the strips of flatiron seasoned simply with just salt and pepper—and what might be the best kid’s burger in town, on a petite buttered brioche bun. The chef’s heritage shows up in the shrimp and grits punctuated by slices of jalapeño. A dessert of chocolate “cobbler” (really more brownie, with a torched marshmallow crust) was ample but a little too dry.
